Councilman <br />Phillips seconded the motion which was carried unanimously, with the <br />exception of Mayor Butterworth, who abstained due to his absence from <br />said meeting. <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth called for Councilmanic discussion and determination <br />on the continued matter pertaining to Planning Commission Resolution <br />No. 444 recommending the granting of a zone variance to allow a second <br />dwelling at 931 South Eighth Avenue, the hearing having been closed at <br />the Regular Council meeting of May 15,1962, at which time testimony <br />had been submitted by the applicant and adjacent property owners both <br />in favor of and opposed to the requested zone variance. <br /> <br />The individual Councilmen expressed their observations and opinions in <br />part as follows: <br /> <br />Councilman Turner: That he did not believe there had been a showing of <br />good faith on the part of the applicants, in that they had indicated in <br />their appearance before the Council on May 15,1962, that the need for the <br />variance was to allow them to build another house on the subject property <br />to permit them to take care of their growing family; that he questioned <br />this statement inasmuch as the subject property is in the hands of a <br />real estate broker for sale; that although he did not know whether this <br />was valid cause for denying the requested variance, it should be <br />considered by the Council. <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth interpolated that a communication dated May 21, 1962 <br />had been received from the Director of Public Works and the Superin- <br />tendent of Building and Safety on the subject matter; that if the <br />Council wishes, in the event the application for a zone variance is <br />approved, it could either approve it outright or condition it upon <br />the suggestions in said letter. <br /> <br />Upon the suggestion of the City Attorney, Mayor Butterworth also stated <br />for the record that although he had not been present at the hearing on <br />the matter held before the Council on May 15,1962, he was familiar with <br />the details of the evidence; that he had reviewed the contents of the <br />tape of the proceedings as well as the minutes of the Council meeting <br />of May 15,1962, and the various communications addressed to the Council. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />6-6-62 <br />
